    The creek Plitvica is 4km long and is one of the permanent watercourses of the National Park. It rises to 640m in the Preka Kosa area as the third largest karst spring within the Plitvice Lakes and never dries up. The stream Plitvica takes, after independent watercourse of 1.5 km, the water from the brook Sartuk, which arises by connecting several small sources. At the place "Hajdukovića mlin" the stream Plitvica flows from the area of poorly drained dolomites into the area with well drained limestones. This transition of the geological base also influences some water losses in the stream. This limestone deposits, which are very intense in the bed of the creek Plitvica help.

    Flowing through the village of Plitvice, the stream reaches the Canyon of the Lower Lakes and plunges over the limestone rock, which is 78m high, and forms the Great Waterfall. This is the highest waterfall in Republic of Croatia.

    You should be there early. As early as possible.
    Unfortunately, the natural spectacle is already so quickly overrun that you have more people than a waterfall. Otherwise, it is a really nice place to enjoy.

    It is well worth getting up early in the park ....... later it will be really busy, especially on nice days!

    If you go the usual standard tour from south to north - the big waterfalls are almost the final highlight before it goes back up to the bus stop.

    A natural fairy tale, which you should visit due to the tourist crowds but outside the main season. Furthermore, one should (if possible) take into account in the planning, that it has previously rained vlt for a long time, because then the waterfalls are all the more magnificent!

    With a height of 78m, the Veliki Slap (large waterfall) is the highest waterfall in the Plitvc Lakes National Park and even in all of Croatia. If you come from the upper lakes, the waterfall is at the end of the route. But you can also start from entrance 1, the lower lakes and then go directly to the waterfall.

    The difference between the large waterfall and the other smaller waterfalls in the Plitvice National Park is the formation and origin. While the waterfalls of the 16 lakes in the national park are created by the differences in height of the individual lakes and by the overcrowding of the higher lakes, the large waterfall is created by the Plitvice river.
